Rave reviews for The Watch That Ends the Night, Voices from the Titanic

[A] masterpiece. Wolf leaves no emotion unplumbed, no area of research uninvestigated, and his voices are so authentic they hurt. Everyone should read it. Outstanding, insightful back matter completes this landmark work. — Booklist, Starred Review

A lyrical, monumental work of fact and imagination that reads like an oral history revved up by the drama of the event. — Kirkus, Starred Review

Several concrete poems add visual interest; the Iceberg poems gradually get shorter as the monster melts, and the melee above decks is shown through a series of four-line poems surrounded by snippets of frantic conversation that converge in the gutter. As the ship sinks, the words of shipbuilder Thomas Andrews’s poem tilt and then drop off the page. — Horn Book Magazine, Starred Review

Allan Wolf has combined meticulous research with open-hearted poetry to craft the story of the Titanic in a fresh and compelling way. A remarkable accomplishment. — Helen Frost, author of Crossing Stones and Hidden

Allan Wolf has imagined his way deep into the cold, dark waters of history and has come back carrying a couple of dozen voices that he discovered there, voices whose authenticity is not only convincing but compelling. —Ted Kooser, former U.S. Poet Laureate and winner of the Pulitzer Prize
